  • Flick off the salt rocks and he should be fine

  • No, he'll eventually suck it so much that a piece will come off. If he only has one tooth then he could choke. A teether put in the refrigerator NOT the freezer is safer.

  • why not do a frozen wash cloth? Is softer and more flexible so it fits over the gums better

  • I wouldn't. A piece could break off and he could choke.

  • That would be my only concern too, a piece falling off once he's gnawed it enough.

  • I think i'm going to try a washcloth instead he doesn't seem to care for teethers for some reason

  • It depends on your 10 month old. My son at 10 months would have been fine with it. Even with no teeth he was eating small bites of stuff and chewing on and eating bread sticks and such. My DD at 10 months was just starting and I would have worried about her choking.

  • I used to use this type of teethers and put a cold piece of apple in it, it  did help him.
